Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) Behavior

  • How our TaC Staff Provides MTSS Behavior Support

    Training and Consultation Staff support school teams with initial planning, implementation, and monitoring of a multi-tiered system which includes

    • Positive Behavior Supports
    • deepening teachers knowledge of classroom management
    • intervention strategies and techniques throughout all tiers
    • developing capacity through professional development for all staff members.


  • Universal Level PBIS Training

    Universal level PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) training for a school-based behavior team consists of three days and related tasks and consultative supports throughout several months to one full school year. Team members will learn the systems, data, and practices imbedded in PBIS implementation at the tier one level. These practices ensure access of all learners to a comprehensive system of expectations and acknowledgments, as well as a behavioral curriculum. Attention is given to team-building, roles, and effective data-based meeting structures. Kickoff planning and maintenance support are provided by Staff Developers to schools that commit to the PAPBS network. Tier 1 implementation of PBIS is representative of a 3-5 year commitment to changing school culture.

    PAPBS State Network Opportunities

    Schools implementing PBIS may sign a network commitment letter to the PAPBS Network. Accepted schools will receive training in fidelity-based processes of PBIS Implementation. access will be granted, through which schools can collect staff, student, and parent perception data on matters of implementation and school safety. Staff Developers will lead schools through the interpretation of collected data. Schools who are members of the PAPBS Network are eligible to apply for recognition of their multi-tiered implementation processes yearly. School-Wide Information System (SWIS), a product of PBISApps, is available for purchase to be used by schools for data collection at tiers 1, 2, and 3.

    Data-based Problem Solving

    Participants will learn the Team Initiated Problem Solving model (TIPS) model for running data team meetings. The Model includes information on how to build precise data-informed problem statements and corresponding solution statements. The TIPS model includes the use of roles for team members to ensure that there is shared ownership in data-based outcomes. This problem-solving model is applicable to all three tiers of Behavior MTSS.

Conflict resolution and both verbal and physical de-escalation strategies are the foundation of these safety management programs. Physical intervention is modeled and practiced.
